A federal judge has tossed out a racketeering lawsuit former House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes filed last year against the private investigation firm at the heart of the Trump-Russia saga.

Alexandria, Va.-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O'Grady's two-page order issued Friday made short work of Nunes' suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability.

The judge also signaled that pressing on with the legal battle could result in sanctions against Nunes and his attorney, Steven Biss.
